Many of these caves made from real Florida lime stone. Koi ponds all over the place and water falls as well as wild life. Huge cat fish, arowanna and other species like reptilian alligators and turtles all live in the resort to. Real orchids grow wild on the side walls of these huge limestone rocks which make these mammoth caves. All this is under a dome so no matter what the weather is outside, it is always nice and dry on the inside. It was also nice and cool and not like what you would expect from typical Florida warm weather.
